Monday – Wednesday: Light the Way to Justice vigils calling for full LGBT equality are happening in more than 170 towns across all 50 states to mark the start of oral arguments. Find a vigil in your town at this link. CSE is hosting an Asheville, N.C. vigil with local partners tomorrow. We’re also very proud to stand with groups all across the country who are hosting vigils, including WE DO teams in Winston-Salem and Wilson, N.C.; Greenville and Columbia, S.C.; and Gulfport, Miss. A shout out to our friends at Gender Benders, SC Equality, Greenville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and Equality NC for coming together to host 10 vigils across the Carolinas this week.
